that president obama has taken so far? >> that's about the ap phone records and is outrageous that the white house is saying we have nothing to do with it. the justice department had a criminal investigation going on now. not hesitating to interfere and this is larger than any one investigation and this administration should get out there and say it's not acceptable to be going after the private cell home office phone records of journalists to 20 journalists, multiple locations, over long periods of time. that's what's known as a fishing expedition and that undermines the first amendment. >> i want to bring in congresswoman karen bass. good morning. >> good morning. >> i want to talk first to you about what's going on with the irs. eric holder is is going to appear in less than three hours. what's your line of questioning for him when it comes to the irs? >> my number one question really is when did he, well, really looking at this and saying that if this is what happened, it is unacceptable, period. i do think though that we have to remember that this is not the first time this happened in

's time for miller to go. the white house says president obama is waiting for official report on the treasury department's investigation before it takes any action. >> if the reports about the activity of irs personnel prove to be true, he would find them outrageous and he would expect that appropriate action be taken and that people be held responsible. >> shepard: well, tonight, fox news has gotten ahold of that report. mike emanuel has it on capitol hill. what are the highlights? >> well, shep, still going through it at this hour but we can tell you that it is pretty tough going after the irs for a lack of leadership. it calls its management ineffective. says they targeted specific groups. they delayed processing of conservative and other groups. they requested unnecessary info such as the names of donors and the political affiliation of the leadership of these groups. shep? >> shepard: what are republicans saying, mike? >> they are calling on president obama to help the investigators up here on capitol hill figure out how high this goes in the u.s. government. one veteran
